  15. The Grammy's are coming up soon, and how can we watch them without knowing who's nominated?



    Can I just say, congratulations to Prince! 3121 was nominated! He's a Jehovah's Witness now, so it's not as filthy as his older stuff, but it still has that Prince flavor to it. I love "Black Sweat."
